Outposts

For those anglers looking for a truly remote fishing experience a fly-in outpost is definitely the answer. We have four outpost cabins on four separate lakes. You'll never have to worry about crowds and you can fish in complete seclusion for walleye, northern, muskie, bass or lake trout. Our lakes are only a short distance, 5 minutes to 20 minutes will get you to the lake of your choice and you will be fishing in no time.
Our cabins are fully stocked and include hot and cold running water, indoor showers, solar powered lights, barbeques, fish cookers, fridges, and stoves. We run new Yamaha motors with swivel boat seats and plenty of gas on site. Satellite phone are available for emergencies.

Ajax Lake 

49.3291769642 N 93.430568967 W

The Ajax Lake area is a five lake system 15 minutes from Nestor Falls, with great fishing opportunities for walleye, northern, bass and lake trout. Small lakes and some short portages make for great canoeing. Shallow creeks and bays offer great moose aquatic feeding areas and some wonderful wildlife encounters.


Ajax has some nice sand beaches and several portage trails for hiking. Great baitcasting for northern (up to 44”), small and largemouth bass (up to 21”) and lake trout (up to 32”).

Cleftrock Lake

(35 air miles) The only cabin on this 3 lake system, only accessible by floatplane. It is about 2 miles long with several bays. There are holes of about 80 feet deep. It is tea-colour, which make it ideal for walleye. Cleftrock has both inflowing water and outflows on each end of it. It is a small lake but there are 2 portage lakes to explore with lots of opportunities for catching Walleye and Northern Pike. There are a few deep pockets on the lake and a few good humps. The lake has lots of islands and great fish structure.

Kishkutena Lake

(8 air miles) is about seven miles long and one mile wide. The water is slightly tea colored and anywhere from about 40 to 80 feet deep. It has a predominately rocky shoreline with lots of islands and rock piles. In the deep sections of the lake you will fish for Lake Trout. Plenty of small mouth bass will provide you with tons of action and the lake is well known for producing several muskies in the 40’’ range.

Gordon Lake    (*New outpost for 2018)

Gordon Lake

(36 air miles) We purchased the Gordon Lake Outpost in 2004, although we ran a few groups through every year we decided to shut it down in 2010. Since it's a small lake with no other cabins or fishing pressure this lake has basically been untouched. In the fall of 2016 we started clearing the old site which involved complete removal of the old cabin as well as new docks and ramps. We will start construction of a brand new building in 2017 and the cabin will be open for business in 2018. This is a fantastic lake that produces big walleye as well as Northern & Muskie.

We are now taking reservations for the 2018 season !

 

Cabin will sleep 8
